    Hi,

    I am facing the following issue. When I connect my new Galaxy S to my computer using the usb connection, I can see both the internal and external SD card (I use a sandisk Ultra 16GB card). However I can not open these disks. Windows refuses to open them. The right click on these disks in order to get their properties gives 0GB! So what is going wrong. Do the SD cards use a special format (linux ?) that windows can not see correctly ? Any response is welcomed.

    I take chance of this message to give a short feedback of my first week with my galaxy S here in France. I got it from virginmobile operator. I have to say that this phone is amazing. What a screen ! My wife just purchased an iphone 4. By far I prefer the samsung's screen. Concerning the battery. One can go for one or two days without recharging. My feeling is that it is not shorter than the iphone's battery.

    Best regards

    The SD cards are formatted in FAT32 so there shouldn't be any problems there.

    I assume you have mounted the SD card for the USB connection as you can see both of them. Have you tried using USB debugging mode (settings>applications>Development)?

    Thank's for the response. After turning off and on the phone, the sd cards are now correctly recognized in windows.
